I don't think interested buyers are too concerned with the fuel economy of the new Raptor. It'll most likely come to NA equipped with Ford's Ecoboost engine, which has shown pretty decent mpg in the F150 and Mustang. Wonder why its taking them so long to confirm an international release.

Well part of it is the demographic of buyers and here we have people buying their first pick-up so naturally there will be some concern over fuel economy. Its actually for that reason why they would get a Colorado over a Sierra or a Tacoma over a Tundra.

That's probably why we've seen rumours around a hybrid powertrain for the NA model. Surprisingly the Raptor variant of the F150 is one of the most fuel efficient pickups in Fords lineup.

It was still very bad for a truck. Ford seriously needs to do something about that and there won't be any better way to show what a Hybrid truck can be than a Hybrid Raptor. They better do it before Chevy or RAM does. RAM is closer to doing it.

I mean that's the compromise that you sort of have to make when buying a "performance" pickup. No one buys a 500hp vehicle expecting it to fuel efficient. But you're right that the 15mpg fuel economy leaves a lot to be desired. Guess we'll see the improvements when their hybrid setup debuts on the F150.

Found a table with a breakdown of the fuel economy of the Raptor and its competitors. They all seem to be pretty equal in terms of efficiency at the moment, which is fairly impressive considering the Raptors performance.

I did not anticipate the Tundra being the least fuel efficient of the bunch, and its not even the TRD trim. I'm really curious how the Ranger Raptor will hold up in relation to the other mid sized trucks in the segment.

Considering the Ranger will be using a 10 speed transmission, it should sit near the top in terms of fuel economy. We don't think that the diesel engine will come to North America? Even as an option?

I wouldn't say its impossible, and Ford has finally decided to release a diesel F150 here. I just think for the volume that Ford is hoping to sell the Ranger at, that a petrol version will be more successful.

Well it doesn't help that the tundra is on an older and heavier platform. Once a next generation version comes out then Toyota will have a much better chance, not to mention all the other non-weight reduction stuff they will be doing.
